Loafers

Men's Trends Spring 2013: Loafers

Guys, these are not your grandpa’s shoes. Loafers are making a big comeback this year, and they’re perfect for spring. Cuff your jeans or roll up your chinos to show off a sleek pair that fits your personality — whether you like them loud or are a little more classic. Go sans socks on sunny days, and when the temperature drops at night, pair them with printed socks.

Military

Men's Spring 2013 Trends: Military

From bomber jackets to camouflage everything, the military trend was all over the Spring/Summer 2013 runways. For rugged sex appeal, try a leather motorcycle or bomber jacket over a cotton t-shirt. For those of you looking for something a little more rustic, opt for a camouflage jacket or cargo vest (take a tip from our Man of Style‘s cargo look) and mix it up with tribal prints or a plaid button-down.

Nautical

Men's Spring Fashion: Nautical Trend

Warmer weather means boating season, so it’s no surprise that the luxury seafaring look is a spring staple. We like how versatile this trend is — you can go all-out in nautical wear from head to toe, or simply throw on a preppy watch or boat shoes instead. Just make sure to top it off with a bucket hat, which is the hat of the season for spring. (And pack a flask of Captain for your swashbuckling crew, too.)

Linen & Khaki Suits

From Michael Bastain to Michael Kors, linen and khaki suits walked down every runway this season. Lighten up your heavy winter suits and sportscoats with lightweight materials in neutral shades, which are perfect for a spring wedding and a trip to the office. Pair your linen/khaki suit with a light blue or white button-down and a pastel tie for a timeless look.

Denim & Chambray

Men's 2013 Spring Trends: Chambray & Denim

Sure, button-downs are always a staple, but chambray or denim fabrics are the best way to freshen them up for spring. When wearing chambray or denim on top, beware of wearing jeans on bottom — it’ll look better if you opt for chinos or colored shorts, instead. This piece is meant to be worn in a relaxed setting, so don’t be afraid to layer it over your favorite t-shirt, roll up the sleeves, and declare this as your weekend uniform.

This trend isn’t just for the adventurous type — so shy guys, try this out, too. Trust us, you’ll look good.
